The painter Juliana Seraphim has divided her professional career between Lebanon and the great capitals of Europe. On three occasions, she was chosen by the government of Lebanon to represent her country: at the Biennale of Paris, the Biennale of Alexandria, and the Biennale of Sao Paulo. French, Italian, and Spanish scholarships gave her the opportunity to pursue advanced studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, where she studied anatomy, art history, and oil painting and drawing; the Academy of Fine Arts in Paris, where she studied copperplate engraving; and at St. Ferdinando of Fine Arts in Madrid, where she studied book illustration.
She has received the Florence Prize, Lebanon’s Prize of the Ministry of National Education, and second place in the Prize for Foreigners at the City of Viarregio.
As a painter of fantastic art, Seraphim appears in the Planète magazine anthology Les chefs-d’oeuvre du fantastique and has produced several works of considerable rarity. In 1971 she completed twenty-seven engravings on copper for Shorewood Publishers of New York, plates which illustrated nine winners of the Nobel Prize for Literature: Yasanuri Kawabata, St. John Perse, T. S. Eliot, Samuel Beckett, Thomas Mann, Gabriela Mistral, Pablo Neruda, Erik-Axel Karlfeldt, and Miguel Asturias. It is a strictly limited edition. As painter, draughtswoman, and engraver, Seraphim played a role in the great movement of the parallel arts, including poster design. Her works were chosen by the French publishing company Mic-Mac for printing in color, after which they were circulated around the world.
Seraphim’s canvases are exhibited at the following museums: the Museum of the City of Viareggio (Italy), the Museum of “La Femme Célèbre” (Neuilly, France), Musée du suréalisme (Paris), The National Gallery (Amman, Jordan), The Nicolas Sursock Museum (Beirut, Lebanon), and Institut du monde arabe (Paris).
